In response to George Soros’s notoriously anti-law enforcement influence in American politics, a new organization has been formed to unite Jewish opponents against his radical goal.
The group Jews Against Soros, founded by Josh Hammer, Newsweek’s senior editor, and Will Scharf, who is running for attorney general in Missouri, has vowed to fight back against the often used left-wing charge that opposition to Soros is antisemitic.
The organization rightly states that going after Soros for his interjections into American politics is not antisemitic. Soros, it must be said, provides significant funding for many members of the American radical left, and the group says concerned Americans have to do something about it because he’s dangerous.
It has been an evident and infuriating cudgel that the left uses to escape scrutiny and objections to their policies- trot out some “marginalized” aspect of an aggressive and influential politico to act as a shield.
If you are against Obama’s policies, you are a racist.
If you are against Hillary’s policies, you are a sexist.
If you are against Buttigeig’s policies, you are a homophobe.
This technique has reached peak absurdity with George Soros.
According to Scharf, Soros spent $128.5 million on Democratic races in the 2022 midterm elections, making him the greatest political contributor in America at the time. In addition to funding pro-illegal immigration organizations like La Raza, Alianza, and the NILC, he said Soros had given $40 million to far-left prosecutors like Chesa Boudin, Alvin Bragg, Kim Gardner, and Kim Foxx.
Scharf also asserts that Soros is a secret funder of the BDS movement, which “seeks to delegitimize Israel in the eyes of the world.”
In addition, he claimed that Soros’s charities had funded groups with ties to Palestinian terrorist organizations, including the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
Scharf wrote on Twitter that it is not anti-Semitic to oppose George Soros and the leftists who share his extreme goal, and the time is right for Jews to take a position.
